Covid-19

Reopening The Riverford Field Kitchen

We understand that returning to a sense of normality may still be a worry for many guests. We want to reassure you that we have put measures in place to ensure the safety of our guests and Co-Owners.

At present, we remain closed for dining until the week commencing Monday 17th May. This is the earliest date we can welcome guests to dine inside the restaurant, although we hope to be granted permission to serve guests on our outside patio from the week commencing 12th April.

You can book online now for dates from the Wednesday 19th May onwards (we do not open Mondays or Tuesdays outside of school holidays).  We are hoping to be able to offer outside dining on our patio during April & beyond but we need to wait for an amendment to be approved on our licence.

We will start to host gardening workshops in the Field Kitchen Garden during April and we aim to host our first cookery workshops and dining event inside the restaurant in June 2021.

All events are available to book now on our website.

Your Safety

We take guest safety extremely seriously and have introduced the following measures to keep you safe and well. These measures will be constantly reviewed and adhere to the Government's guidance.

We have reduced the capacity on our workshops to allow more space, ensuring all guests can remain the required distance apart.

Until official advice is amended, our Co-Owners will continue to wear face coverings to help keep you safe and we ask that all guests wear face coverings when inside the restaurant except when seated at your table. This includes guests on our workshops.

All of our spaces and equipment will be thoroughly cleaned before and after every event and there will be sanitiser stations available for your use.

For cookery workshops, you will have your own utensils and equipment wherever possible and/or necessary and you will be spaced out in the restaurant to allow distance between guests - there will be a maximum of eight guests on any workshop in the restaurant for the time being.

Our Co-Owners will always be around, at a safe distance, to guide you through on the day.

If you have any questions or concerns before your visit, please contact us on fieldkitchen@riverford.co.uk
